Difference between Custom Types and Filters

First of all, I'm a pretty inexperienced user for the ESM. That being said, I'm trying to create a Custom Type that shows the Microsoft Event ID in an event. I want to do this so that I can run searches on specific Microsoft Event IDs. I'm kind of confused on the difference between filters and custom types. Should I create a filter to do this, or should I create a custom type? So far, I've been trying to create a custom type, but I can't find where to enter my regex so that the ESM knows where the text is that I'm looking for.
